Maui, Now and Then

I am back from my wonderful trip to Hawaii. I have not been able to blog because I got a cold right when I got back and immedately following that, I got a nasty ear infection. But here I am now (mostly, I am still on tons of meds).

About our trip: We had an absolute blast. Going to Maui in the springtime is different from going in November. The sunset is in a different spot, for example.

Another difference is the wave intensity. There were considerably less waves during our Spring visit which was great for snorkeling. I do not normally snorkel that much because it hurts my brain after a few minutes but the water was so smooth I thought I would take the opportunity.

Some things went a little downhill. In 2008 we discovered the Mai Tai Lounge and just loved it. They had wonderful drinks and a crazy huge selection. We ordered some pupus. I got the coconut shrimp and it was the best I had on the island. In the photo you can just barely see it in front of me but you can clearly see their toasted little tails sitting up. I was excited to go back and have them again. What I got this time was a pile of mushy, from frozen, tailless shrimp.
See the little shrimp tails standing up on my plate?

And now there is a pile of mush :(

Somethings never change. There are still geckos climbing on the walls:

Harry Troupe is still the best entertainment on the island

and I still love shave ice!

You will notice that my spring 2010 pictures are horrible. That is because I dropped my camera in the ocean the day we arrived and had to buy a very cheap camera to use the rest of the trip.
